Cultivate Kansas City's mission is to grow food, farms, and community in support of a sustainable and healthy local food system for all.
We are farmers. We feed ourselves, we feed our families, we feed our customers, we feed the hungry. We work the soil, we plant, we weed, we harvest, we package, and we sell.
We’re educators, trainers, facilitators, and organizers. Juniper Gardens Training Farm helps refugee farmers start growing small farm businesses. Mini-grants help small farmers overcome obstacles in growing their farm business.
We bring people together. We help farmers connect to each other, their neighbors and their community. We help communities connect to their farmers through the Urban Grown Farms and Gardens Tour. We work with neighborhoods, community based organizations, design and planning professionals, and municipalities to help them take advantage of the environmental and design benefits of urban agriculture. Kansas City, like other cities, has a growing number of empty lots and under-utilized spaces that, when put to growing food, become assets to the neighborhood quality of life and to the city.
